An important cookbook...
well written, with recipes that are superb. We recommend this to
all cooks wishing to extend their repertoire.
This was a gift for
my Assyrian mom. She loved it since she never learned my Grandmother's
recipes. Thank you Hilda for putting this book together for those
of us 3rd generation Assyrians who grew up outside the culture,
this is a great way to reconnect. My mom said it brought back wonderful
childhood memories. God bless you and your family!
As I held the cookbook in my hand and started to read through
it, all I could think of was my grandmother Lisa, making these
great meals herself. I'll try to make them too. Thank you and God
I just wanted to write and say THANK YOU. I came home from work to
see your Cook book. I loved each and every page and absolutely love
all your family pictures which you have included.
I must say you fulfilled my dream. I always had wanted to take photographs
of my mothers cooking just like you had. I have a few notes I have
made here and there but never managed to do what you have accomplished.
My Beloved Mother passed away 2 years ago aged 56 and no words can
describe the loss one feels. I regret not doing all the things I would
have loved to do and share with her. I have tried my best to keep the
Assyrian Tradition alive and cook like she did. But like you said,
nothing tastes as goods as her food. I was searching the net looking
for Assyrian foods when I found your book. I will also order a book
for my 2 brothers to keep as well.
Just to let you know I received the 3 books today in extremely good
condition! Very quick, indeed.
I am very excited to start cooking and try all these new recipes.
I also, come from Assyrian Background - yet find it hard to communicate
with family to learn recipes as some times language is the barrier.
I must say, I am extremely happy to have found your book and will
definitely let everyone I know, know about it.
Take care, and thanks once again.
Good morning Hilda,
I received your book about
2 weeks ago and love it. It is very straight forward and my family
has been 'shocked' by how my cooking abilities really are.
Thank You for checking up, and again a wonderful book.
I have just received your cookbook. I am in love with it! You did
such a wonderful job and I enjoyed looking at every page.
The pictures of you and your family are beautiful. I can
not wait to start cooking away!
Thanks again and God bless.
I just wanted to let you know that I have
been using your cook book since I received it. Today I am backing
Kileche for the second time since I received the book! I love
them, they are just like my Mom's. As I said on my earlier
e-mail I love your book, the recipes are truly Authentic Assyrian
Recipes. I hope you are working on a second cook book!
Thank you and God Bless you
I am writing to inform you that I am in
receipt of the three books which I had ordered. Please accept
my earnest gratitude for the speed and efficiency in which
they reached me. Congratulations on the publication of this
much-needed resource. Every contribution to the field of Assyrian
literature, whether in academic, religious, historical or cultural
form is valued immensely and I only hope that others, like
yourself, become contributors to this much neglected field.
Again, I look forward to reading the book thoroughly and wish
you the utmost success for the future.
Excellent cookbook with easy recipes complete
with colorful photos. The book will give you a warm fuzzy feeling
of being part of a wonderful loving family who created and
ate many great meals together.
This is exactly what I've been looking
for! I can never learn how to cook like my mother since she
doesn't measure a thing! But I've always wanted to learn how
to cook some tasty and delicious Assyrian meals. I can't wait
for this book to come out! Thank you so much for this!
I received your book yesterday and I was
thrilled. I've been waiting for an Assyrian cook book for quite
a while. I have a new born baby and I was very tired yet I
couldn't help but browse through the book. You did a great
job. Can't wait to try the recipes.
This will make a great gift.
Hilda you honestly did a
great job with the book. I love how you got pictures of every
dish and your recipes are so easy to follow. Its just awesome,
I hope you will come up with the second book, I'll be the first
one to purchase it!
I can't wait to try out some of your great
